Grilled Chicken With Honey

Grilled chicken with honey

Pure honey is a popular marinade for grilled chicken today. Honey not only makes chicken sweet and fragrant, but also tender but not mushy, very easy to eat. Restaurant chefs often marinate chicken with honey, then wrap it in foil to make grilled chicken with a rich flavor. Or, you can add honey to the chicken thighs or chicken breasts, depending on your preference.


  • Half a chicken or a whole chicken
  • 1 teaspoon minced onion and garlic
  • ½ teaspoon of five flavors
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce


  • Step 1: Preliminarily wash the chicken
  • Step 2: saute onion and garlic in a hot pan, add honey, sugar, fish sauce, oyster sauce, and five spices at the same time to the pan and stir until it thickens into a mixture.
    Pay attention, adjust the stove temperature again since you put honey and sugar in the pan and pay attention to not burn.
  • Step 3: Turn off the heat, let it cool, then mix the seasoning with the chicken. Use your gloved hand to rub the spice evenly over the meat. Waiting time for marinating is 3 hours. It’s best to keep it in the fridge.
  • Step 4: Open the refrigerator to take the honey marinated chicken, let it cool down a bit and then put it on a baking tray.
    – If grilling charcoal, you should choose a charcoal stove and spread it on the outside to worship the meat with honey spice sauce to make the dish golden and fragrant.
    – Do not grill chicken with a charcoal stove in the house because it is easy to smoke. To bake honey-marinated chicken in an electric oven, you need to line the tray with foil, brush with cooking oil on the inside, place the chicken on top, and bake for 30 minutes. Every 10 minutes, open the oven once to spread more honey on the meat to help the chicken absorb the spices and eat well without being dry and tough.
    Note: The way to bake honey marinated chicken can be by charcoal grill or oven.
  • Step 5: Put the chicken on a plate, decorate it beautifully. Best when served with a salad dressing with vinegar or salad.
